My research interests are in the area of applied water resources engineering.  Specifically my focus is on
open channel flow hydraulics (bridge and culvert analysis, bridge scour, and sediment transport),
storm water management (design and development of Best Management Practices), and engineering
hydrology (peak flow predication).

Click here to view my doctoral dissertation which focused on ascertaining the driving mechanism which leads
to the development of scour at the upstream face of blunt nosed piers.
